Looks like I can't make it this month, sadly.

I'd also be happy to have a game against your Tau if you're interested! Guard vs Tau is one of my favourite matchups.
Sounds good!

I know I am a poor substitute, but I could step in and play Malifaux.

No negative self-talk! :x
Let's do it. Do you want to do 40 or 50 pts?

I'll be able to join this month with some variety of CSM. Might try out the new codex stuff...

I think if Underdweller wants to be sad, you should let him. it's not healthy to keep emotions locked up.

40 or 50 is fine. I will choose a faction after I see the Strats so flip away anytime you like.

I expect to have the new 40k mission pack, as I've preordered and it should arrive the day before.

Most relevant differences for list building are that Actions are real again and OC0 units can't do them so rando Nurglings, Ripper Swarms etc are a bit less useful. They're not longer directly coupled to shooting so throwing a random Assault gun into a unit doesn't get you advance and action.

A lot of the cards have small buffs to Battleline units. Not sure if they're consequential enough to really change your list for but a nice bonus if you like fielding your faction's general infantry anyway.

40k players: Balance Dataslate is out and it's a doozy. Lots of changes in the Core Rules errata and commentary too. Would suggest checking an overview/review from your favourite source to help digest it.

Upshot is very positive I think, less weird outcomes and things that are awkward on the table (pivot rules and models squeezing through gaps, strat cost affecting abilities somewhat nerfed but no longer just affecting Battle Tactics, dev wounds are mortals again but don't overflow). The tradeoff of course is there's a lot to be aware of.

Fair number of points changes too - Sisters won't be nearly as busted as expected, AdMech got point rises because they also got very strong new rules etc.

Impulsors now seat 7 so I have all I ever wanted.

Hmm, I haven't heard from jus either here or over LINE, so sorry Konrad, but I think I'll just bring Kill Team and Underworlds unless he gets in touch.
Feel free to call me Dave!
